    The Fryderyk Chopin Museum in Warsaw

    The Fryderyk Chopin Museum takes care of the world’s largest and most varied collection of Chopiniana – memorabilia connected with the life and work of the composer – which consists of over 7500 items.

    The collection includes music manuscripts, editions of Chopin’s works, his correspondence, historical and contemporary iconography, precious personal items, as well as documents connected with biography, critical comments about his works, and the reception of the composer’s person and works in a broad sense. 


    It is located in the historic Ostrogski Palace and is one of the most modern biographical museums in Europe. Thanks to the exhibits and multimedia collected here, you will learn about both the life and work of the composer.


    The collection of the Fryderyk Chopin Museum is gathered through purchases and donations. Particularly distinguished donors include the Ministry of Culture, National Heritage and Sport of the Republic of Poland, and the National Museum in Warsaw. Also invaluable are the donations of private individuals who have combined their passion for collecting with their willingness to serve the public. It is also thanks to them that the collections of the Museum grow.


    In 1999 part of the Chopin Museum’s collection was inscribed on the UNESCO’s Memory of the World list, which includes objects that require special protection due to their unique cultural value.
